 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n) = A155980(n+2). a(n) = A135351(n+3)-A135351(n+2). Second binomial transform of a signed version of A005032 preceded by 3. Inverse binomial transform of A008776 preceded by 3. LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,2). FORMULA a(n) = a(n-1)+2*a(n-2) for n > 1; a(0) = 3, a(1) = -1. a(n) = 2^n-a(n-1) for n > 0; a(0) = 3. G.f.: (3-4*x)/((1+x)*(1-2*x)).
